sup, cool instruction thing, i got a ?, i like drawing stuff and i made some pretty cool t shirt designs and a couple ppl said they would buy em if i made hoodies with that design, basically i need to know what to use on hoodies and what i need so that would be cool if u could help me out.

Re: hoodies
The entire process is the same for hoodies, just replace "t-shirt" with "sweatshirt" and you'll be good to go. Really though, nothing changes. I've printed onto sweatshirts and canvas bags before too.

Just found these beautiful instructions, after a random act of google. Thanks bunches for teaching me the ways of the wise.

i tried to use tulle and it sucks so bad, the holes are too big for the glue to set on, and i bought the wrong ink. i'm so freaking aggrivated right now, grr. but other than that, very concise and creative directions!

Thank you SO much for posting this!

I want to transfer an image onto some fabric for a corset, but thought that silk-screening it would be too expensive, particularly for a one-shot project, but now you've got me thinking I can do it. Thanks again!

screen cow hoopla
you rule.

i bought a screenprinting kit last week and was almost in the depths of despair cos I thought I'd blown all this money and couldn't get the damn screen tight enough. I never would have thought to use an embroidery hoop.

The material
Thanks for the instructions
What kind of tulle should I use? The stiff tulle or the not so stiff kind

Re: The material
The tighter the weave of fabric, the more detailed your image will turn out.

we heart you
My friend and I made the most awesome t shirts in the history of the planet thanks to your excellent instructions. Thank you sooooo muuuchhhh!!!!!!!! <3 <3 <3 <3
Perfect way to spend the evening - especially for people without painting skillz.

boop boop boop beep.

Seriously, you rock.

i'm curious about the printing, how do you get the large areas of black? do you cut away pieces of the material?
Jun. 21st, 2005 04:44 am (UTC)
Where ever you want ink (i.e. black), don't put glue. Where ever there is glue there won't be black. Don't cut the fabric once it's inside the hoop at all.

I am so going to try this today!!
I have been searching for months to learn how to silk screen. See I bought a $30 speed ball silk screening kit and its too complicated for me to figure it out with the instructions.
But Thanks to you!!! I am just going to use the screen from the kit and do the glue thing! I hope it comes out right cause I am going to do like 20 shirts for my bands and projects!
You rock!

One more thing...
I do want to learn how to silk screen so I can buy a mass press, and help you can give me on learning how? There are NO classes in the bay area for it.

Re: I am so going to try this today!!
Sorry, I really have no idea where you can take classes, I don't know how to do it the "real" way myself.

Good luck with your projects!

I dont have a question or anything, I just thought you might like to see some shirts I made with this method.

And a tried a two color print:

wow, those are awesome. how did you do the two-color one? did you make two screens? because the two colors are touching eachother. sorry, im dumb

That's pretty slick!
I'm in the screen biz and we do thousands of shirts a month. Your tutorial got my interest in the hobby aspect up and running. Thank you.
